Sandwich Starts Process to Find Interim and Permanent Superintendents

KA_Sandwich_Schools highschool 82_111715SANDWICH – The Sandwich School Committee has started the process to find an interim Superintendent to replace Richard Canfield who is retiring on June 30.

A subcommittee was formed earlier this month to conduct the search for a replacement who would start on July 1.

“We will be posing internally for any candidates who are within the Sandwich Public School District and we will also be posting on websites with the Massachusetts Association of Superintendents and School Committees,” said Nancy Crossman, the chair of the Sandwich School Committee.

Crossman said the school committee hopes to get several retired superintendents to apply for the position.

“The subcommittee will review the applicants and submit names for the full committee to review in the open session,” Crossman said. “We will have questions that will be given on camera to each of the finalists.”

A search for a permanent replacement was also authorized and Crossman said the goal will be to find an individual that plans to hold the position for a while.

“It’s always difficult to have a lot of change,” she said. “We would be looking for someone that would have a long-term commitment.”

Crossman said public input will be an important part of the process in finding the permanent superintendent.

“We will be having many open forums for staff, for parents and for community participation to make that determination as we proceed with the full search,” she said. “It’s a lengthy process if you do it right and we want to get it right.”

Crossman expects the interim replacement to hold the position for the 2016-17 school year.
